You Can Now Download 400,000 Of The Met’s Artworks For Free

New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art has a fairly impressive collection of art stashed away. Now, you can download almost 400,000 digital images of its pieces for free.

The artworks have been released as Open Access for Scholarly Content (OASC), which means students, academics and anyone working on scholarly-like not-for-profit projects can use them free of charge. The collection — which ranges from Rembrandt to obscure Aztec sculpture — is made up of images that the museum feels are in the public domain but aren’t subject to any other copyright restrictions. The ones that are up for grabs are labelled as OASC and have a download icon beneath them. Go check ’em out. [Metropolitan Museum of Art via Slashgear]
